Three Things Thursday

1. SNOW DAY! No work for me (Bethany) today. This is my 4th snow day this month, it's really helping my swimming though! I'll be heading to the gym soon (I walk there) to swim, do a short tempo run on the treadmill and then lift.

2. Hard to explain but I've been feeling like such a slacker lately!! By "lately" I mean since October 18th! On October 17th I ran the Baystate Marathon (3:34:??) and I feel like that was my last hard-effort workout. The last time I ran fast was a 5 miler on Thanksgiving! I just feel like I haven't been working out as much or as hard lately. It's hard to explain, yes, I ran a 50 miler in November, and yes, I just did Goofy's Challenge but I just feel like I'm in dire need of a really hard workout, I'm feeling a bit out of shape. I'm pacing a group of friends in February for a 3:50 at the Hyannis Marathon so that should feel good. Once this snow melts I'll start doing hills and I'd love to get to the track, but it's covered in snow.

3. Do you know what 4 months from today is??????? OUR WEDDING! Still no bridesmaid dresses lol, I really need to get on this planning stuff...

Happy Thursday to everyone!!! Stay safe my New England friends!

Hope you find those bridesmaids dresses! I am going after work with my MOH to look for some. You should totally steal those pictures from biggest loser when you have your hair appointment. I love that look - its not too plain but also have volume!!

Wow 4 snow days! I have to admit I'm feeling a bit ripped off in the snow dept here in the midwest. A bit...
Have fun BM dress shopping!

Jennifer said...

You a slacker? No way! You just did that thing down in Disney! Besides you are allowed downtime, I think you told me that once! Have a fun snow day! Down here we get hurricane days, the last turned out to be a two week gig, but that was 5 years ago...

Okay, Bethany, you're not even close to being a slacker! Fact! :)

misszippy said...

Yes, you're no slacker! The easier time has probably been good for your body, too.

Emz said...

you + slacker ----- if I ever read that in a post of your again girl . . . I will fly out and hurt you. ;)

4 months. awesome.

Morgan said...

Only you would call yourself a slacker after having done all that! Girl you are such an inspiration, I so wish we lived closer so we could train together i.e. I could chase you around! :) Enjoy your snow day!

Johann said...

Snow day...I can only dream of such a day. I think your body got some good rest and is now ready to go for it.

Emily said...

I agree with Morgan. You're such a champ.

PS Got my goodies in the mail last night!! Thanks again and thanks to your parents for sending them!!

Marlene said...

You are the opposite of a slacker, but I know the feeling! It'll feel good to push it a bit in a race again soon, I'm sure!

4 months - yahoo!!!

Mel -Tall Mom on the Run said...

marathonmaiden said...

5 Miles 2 Empty said...

Um, 4 months away and no bridesmaid's dresses? There is your hard workout right there!! Better get to it!!

I would call this a recovery period in your yearly training plan. The book i am reading talks about doing yearly plans. It's too much for me to plan like that. I'm not a planner. But I am sure your body is loving the tiny break and will be back stronger then ever!

teacherwoman said...

Glad you found me again! Sounds like you are making the most of your snow day!

Amanda said...

I would love a snow day, but not much chance of that happening here in AZ! Enjoy those days off.

I can understand what you mean about the hard workout. I've started picking up the workouts and I do like it. Hope you get a chance to really kick a workout soon and feel that!

4 months - you guys are so close now!

Aron said...

NOT a slacker in the running but maybe in the BM dress shopping ;) lol jk jk. Happy FOUR months until the wedding!

Meg said...

4 months?!! OMG, that is so soon! This is getting very exciting, I hope you find those dresses soon! Someone showed me one from Banana Republic. Have you seen their dresses?
Good luck!

Richelle said...

You are totally not a slacker!

Have you checked out J. Crew, David's Bridal, or Ann Taylor for bridesmaid dresses? Also, when my friend Emily got married a few years ago, she just asked her bridesmaids to wear a black dress with black shoes--any style. We were all comfortable wearing something that we chose ourselves and that fit us well.
